PORSCHE HYBRID
(2007-07-27)
(wgvu) - PORSCHE A-G'S FIRST HYBRID WILL BE
READY WITHIN THREE YEARS.
THE HEAD OF THE GERMAN AUTOMAKER'S NEW HYBRID PROGRAM SAYS IT
SHOWS PROGRESS BY A COMPANY DERIDED BY SOME ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS AS
A CLIMATE DESTROYER.
GERMANY'S AUTO INDUSTRY LEADERS HAVE REJECTED CRITICISMS THAT
THEY LACK THE INITIATIVE TO BUILD MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
CARS.
PORSCHE'S CAYENNE HYBRID IS BEING DEVELOPED IN PART WITH
VOLKSWAGEN A-G AND AUDI A-G. IT IS EXPECTED TO REDUCE THE SPORT
UTILITY VEHICLE'S FUEL CONSUMPTION BY ALMOST A THIRD.
THE HYBRID CAYENNE PROTOTYPE EMITS JUST 240 GRAMS OF CARBON
DIOXIDE PER KILOMETER COMPARED WITH 310 GRAMS FROM A GAS-POWERED
CAYENNE.
PORSCHE WON'T SAY HOW MUCH THE HYBRID VERSION WILL RETAIL FOR
BUT HAS SAID THE U-S IS THE KEY MARKET.
